Hi i have a 318i bmw 2001 my fuel consumption is

Last month, my wife complained of high gas usage as well. I suddenly remembered that I had forgotten to change the air filter the last time I did the oil change. It had been over 5 months since I'd put a new one in. So, we got a new air filter, and monitored the usage, and it was back to normal again. Maybe try this?

I have a 4.0 ltr Range Rover V8. What octane level would be the best to use. Norm Julian.

Hi , I am considering purchasing a 1986 Land Rover County wagon (110 Defender), the engine is a petrol V8. What sort of fuel consumption should I expect or can you direct me to a www that may have that...

The car you are looking into has the same engine as this car (link) The gas millage on that car would be 12MPG (city), 14MPG (highway) and a combined gas millage of 13 MPG. Hope it helps and please rate the answer if it was helpful to you, thanks!

High gas mileage (15- 20 l per 100km)

try changing the oil also it will cause the engine to burn more fuel with bad oil because it gets hot and evaporates it alot more

Engine runs on when driving along

Sounds like the choke is sticking on, that would also explain the heavy fuel consumption

What are the possible reasons for high fuel consumption?

a low cylinder will cause a reduction in fuel economy. also in the winter months many states oxygenate thier fuel, it helps with emmisions but reduces economy. higher octane fuel usually has less feul economy, drop to the mid grade
